Write Reid, Durbin, DLC, DNC, DSCC re: Lieberman the Independent
Edited on Wed Aug-09-06 07:59 AM by peacebird
Here's my letter:

The people of Conn spoke, and chose Ned Lamont as their Democratic candidate for Senate. Joe Lieberman has turned this primary into a mockery by publicly declared himself an independent as soon as he lost. He is completely ignoring the will of the Democrats he supposedly speaks for! Therefore I feel it only appropriate to strip him of a seat on any and all of the committees he is currently serving. These include Homeland Security & Govt Affairs, Armed Services, Environment & Public Works, and Small Business. Mr. Lieberman is placing his ego above the voice of the people in Conn. They voted him out, and he chose to run as an Independent to spite them. This man is NOT a good Democrat, and does not deserve these plum committee seats. Thank you,

1. It will be interesting to see what they do
I doubt they will do this right off- rather I'll bet some people are saying to Joe very forcefully "back the hell off." If he doesn't, well, this might be a forthcoming step.

It would also be interesting to know Sen. Clinton's reaction to these events.
